A slightly older image, for which i apologise as i don't like to show 'old stuff' but in this instance i fond this when rummaging around for images for new falconry website and thought it merited an airing here.
i mean no insult to those that will find this obvious, but for any newer togs -
relatively large aperture used in combination with bigger lens to give separation from background. i had to ensure that the the 'rules' of reciprocity were followed - ie 300mm lens on a full frame camera requires a shutter speed of at least 1/300sec to avoid camera shake, but wanted relatively slow shutter to give potential elongated rain.
negative exposure compensation used to reduce the potential for rain drops being blown if caught by sporadic sunlight.
having now looked at image on here i can anticipate a criticism from one or two as one of my own personal preferences is very evident - but bring on the comments, let's see whether i am right and whether any of the newer folk share my preference or that of the commentator. note to all, do not be concerned with making the 'wrong comment' - not possible when it comes to my images
